Izzy and the Tumble Thunder

Magical time-twisting powers, visions of the future and her missing dad – join Izzy on a breathless adventure to discover her true destiny and save the world.

A loner with a furious temper that has seen her thrown out of school after school, Izzy is too scared to make friends. She does her best to stay out of trouble, but it always finds her.

Living above a clock shop in the heart of west London, she is thrust on a quest through history when she receives a mysterious pocketwatch – a Tumble Thunder - on her 13th birthday.

Chased by the evil Time Shadow, Izzy must learn to control her growing powers and complete the Tumble Thunder if she is to find her dad and fulfil her true destiny as a Time Child.

Stu lives near in Ashton Lane near Sale with his family.
